    Fantastic speakers with good EQ adjustment!

    I listened to the 6.5" 3 way version these at the store and was impressed with their range and clarity of sound, as well as good power ratings. Installed these 6x9 5 ways front of 2008 Toyota Highlander (non-JBL option) along with the matching Kenwood 6.5", 3 way rear of the same series. For the reviews that mention lack of bass, I could not disagree more. The mids and mid-highs are a bit prominent with the paper mid and 3 tweeters, but with proper EQ adjustment to bring those ranges down a bit, the overall sound is FANTASTIC from lows through highs. The bass is clean and punchy. Combined with the rear 6.5" Kenwoods the bass resonates clean and strong. If you turn up the bass end of EQ, the speakers can put out even more clean bass without distorting. Side note, I previously installed a JBL set which had slightly better bass than these, but they distorted, cracked, and popped at medium-high volumes. To my ear, these Kenwoods sound much better with some EQ adjustment, and they do not distort at all. Crystal clear.

    They need more power (amp)

    I used these to replace the door speakers in my 2015 f150. The basic no navigation no factory amp system. They were an immediate improvement over stock but noticeably lacked in the bass/mid range. After hooking up an amp (4ch 100wrms per ch @4ohm)these dudes REALLY came alive. they'll give you all you need. Plenty of bass, mids, and highs. I also got the same concert series 5.25 in the rear doors. The only thing I don't like is in the specs list about power ratings. One place says 650rms one says 650 peak, one says 125 nominal....come on guys what is it?? This is why 4 not 5 stars

    Just a simple upgrade to my truck stereo. Just replaced speakers and was extremely happy with the results. Was able to go to 6x9 in door. Used the recommendation size on the website and it was very accurate. Kept the stock stereo in my 2015 Silverado but wanted a sound upgrade and it worked great. Had them installed at Best Buy as well and they did an excellent job. Replaced rear speakers with Kenwoods as well

    I ended up pairing these with some Kicker 3-way 6x9's and I'm pleased with the sound. I originally paired them with another set of these, but one was damaged out of the box. It was almost a blessing in disguise because they were too high pitched. I would almost suggest that if you get this set to pair them with plain speakers that excel with mid to low range. These play the highs exceptionally well.

    Needed something (nothing fancy) to replace older stock speakers and these were literally a perfect fit. Description online made it easy to buy without having to worry wether or not they would fit/work for our specific vehicle. Best Buy also recommended the adapters and I’m glad they did.

    I install this with a stock stereo for 2003 Buick and sounded bad, I got a keen wood receiver for Christmas and all hope was restore, super clear and loud. The ken wood receiver is to die for. Build equalizer, HRZ per speaker and you get to choose the type of car and were the speaker are I am extremely happy

    It's all about the sound

    These speakers sound ok with a Factory head unit. I think they would even be better with a small amplifier to increase the bass response. These speakers are harder to get a lot of rich bass due to the other speakers above. So if your looking for something that has a little more bump. I would suggest 2-ways.

    Sounds quality is poor

    Purchased for a 2007 Dodge Ram suggested by the auto tech. These are not an upgrade from OEM 10 year old speakers. They high range is ok, the mid and low ranges are poor. I plan to return them and purchase another item. I also noticed that BestBuy is the only company with the KFC-690 Kenwood part number.

    Got these on sale but I would have been happy with the purchase at full price. I replaced the original speakers in the rear of my van. Good response in the full range. They have a good template if you need it , just cut it out of the box.

    This one of the few higher RMS Watt capable speakers they sell at a reasonable price. Going cheaper will get you coming to look at another pair again. Played them at 42 dbB in my car with super bass mode and it was flawless; no electrical smell etc.

    I was debating between this kenwoods or pioneer. I am so glad I went with this kenwoods. Very happy with the sound and quality. Definitely need an amp to power them.

    These speakers were easy to install and they sound great. I was a little concerned because they said they were flush mount, but the tweeter/mid-range speakers stick up a little. They did fit under my car's speaker covers so I am happy.

    these sound great in my car. However, I found that the JBL's were better all the way around, so I swapped them out. Still a great brand and great sounding.
